So the far majority of people usually seem to be quite open and positive to me. The second picture I did not realize I was on camera. Some people get my style instantly when they see me, some people are intrigued, and some people are "WTF". I try never to talk down to the critics, and to be respectful, polite and kind to them, and then they usually begin to associate my style with being well mannered.
I know you're a well mannered good guy.

I've been thinking about the "mullet" look myself a bit. No one wants to look like a Frankenstein's monster sewn together from two well-dressed fellows. It works best when you draw the work/casual wear up, and the formal/dress wear down. Rob has done this with the socks and shoes, but up top it's still quite dressy, hopsack and gingham notwithstanding. I think without the spread collar, or with a coarser shirt like rumpled, tradly oxford, it would be a home run. As it is, it just hit the top of the wall and out ran the left fielder. Good for a triple, at least.

NYR: Here's my $.02 - I agree with the previous posters who said the top is just too dressy for the jeans. Some jeans are can be dressed up, but those jeans are rugged & badass & hefty & old school. Pair it with an buttton-down oxford or plaid shirt, knit tie, boots (like yesterday's) and either a tweed SC or a slim leather jacket, and you'd be set. Brass knuckles optional.

Cheers.

Fritz, as far as the cuffs go, I feel it harkens back to an era when jeans were worn by laborers and field workers. For safety they needed their pants shorter, and practicality for people like that was a simple roll, rather than a trip to the tailors. One grandfather of mine drove a truck and the other worked in a soda factory in Red Hook and they were both known to wear cuffed denim, most likely Levis like the ones I'm wearing. Hope that helps a little.

This is the best reason to mix jeans in with your sportcoats and blazers. Grandpa sold the nursery, and now I work with my brain instead of my hands, but that's where I came from, and that's what I love. I'm glad that, like you, there's no real dress code in my work, so I'm free to wear jeans or duck canvas or trousers or chinos or whatever.

Jacket and sleeves are a tad shorter than I'd prefer, but otherwise I really like this coat.


Sleeves.. maybe a tad short, but, it seems to work on you. Altogether a nice look, the tie and shoes bring it all home. (what's new?)

And, again, Rob...I am going to reiterate the point I made before. This is disjointed. The top and the bottom do not mesh. I understand the fact that you want to preserve the historical aspect of the jeans. Great, wear them with a work shirt and jacket, not with a bespoke sport coat. It is schizophrenic and it just does not work for me. You know I dig your looks, but I am really not feeling these Godzilla cuffed jeans.
